Twitchcon, Queue Times And NDA's Are The Pits | Ep #33
Queue Times And NDA's Are The Pits | Ep #33 | Wired Unplugged PodcastThis week on Wired Unplugged, hosts Jake Kulkowski is once again joined by Wired Productions Gary Marshall whilst Aaron is off recovering national treasures.Fresh back from his Twitchcon adventure, Jake shares his stories from the event, we discuss THAT lenovo foam pit and the creative ways that non-gaming brands find relevance in the gaming space - and the unfortunate demise of Twitch London.In non gaming discussion Gary tries his very best NOT to be distracted by Tom DeLonge returning to Blink 182, and shares his live reaction to the ticketmaster queue system in his quest to secure tickets to the rock show (we said "what?" and he told us that he didn't know), before tangenting off into Coldplay and their unexpected tour guests, just HOW busy is Craig David? and how viable a pelaton would be in a mosh pit.Wired propaganda reveals that Steve NEVER ages (happy birthday fella!) and welcomes Steph to the team as the newest member of our community gang - as well as announcing that we are going to be at Polaris at the end of the month - and that fans of Arcade Paradise might just want to hold on to their quarters....Oh, and Jake is STILL waiting to load into OverWatch 2 and ALMOST manages to go a whole episode without mentioning Silent Hill....Almost.Have a question or topic for the podcast?Tweet us at and we'll do our best to tackle your topic on our next show! Follow Wired: Twitter:  Facebook:  Discord :  Instagram : Wired Unplugged Podcast: #IndieGames #wiredpFollow Wired: Twitter: : : Unplugged Podcast: #IndieGames #wiredpFollow Wired: Twitter: : : Unplugged Podcast:
